EAST St. LOUIS – The Illinois Department of Transportation announces the daytime closure of the inside lane along both northbound and southbound I-55 between Exchange Ave and 3rd St. in East St. Louis on Tuesday July 14th and Wednesday, July 15th. The closure will be during non-peak hours and is required to repair a damaged concrete barrier wall. The IDOT East St. Louis Maintenance Yard will make the needed repairs. Full access will be restored as soon as this work is completed.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
